Another month and another Virtual Console title available for the mere price of 30 cents. This month we have Punch Out!! featuring Mr. Dream for NES available. Today is also the last day for F-Zero, so if you haven’t picked up that game yet, do it today or forever hold your peace. If you don’t see it available on your Wii U just yet, don’t fret as it’ll be there later on today. Some people have reported turning off the console and turning it back on seems to have the title appear in the eShop.

Let us know if you’ll be grabbing Punch Out! in the comments below.

    I will buy it but wish it was Super Metroid time

    • Nintedward

      Super metroid is coming as part of the 30 cent,pence deal right ? *cries tears of joy*

    • Patrick Francis

      Super Metroid is definitely the best out of the 30 cent games.

  • Zuxs13

    Still one of my all-time favorite games. Now i am going to have the damn theme song stuck in my head for the next month.

  • Wayne Beck

    I am unbelievably excited to have Punch Out with Off-TV Play. One of my favorite games.

  • RyuNoHadouken

    which punch out? Mr. Dream or Mike Tyson?

    • Mr. Dream, says so in the article.

      • greengecko007

        If you’re suggesting people actually read the articles you take the time to write up FOR THEIR BENEFIT… you may be asking to much for this community.

        • RyuNoHadouken

          the grammatical errors usually found in these articles give me a headache

          • greengecko007

            Protip! If you’re going to complain about grammatical errors to the author, how about put a period at the end of your sentence!

            The funny thing about grammar is that it is actually quite subjective. What many of your old school English and writing comp. teachers would call incorrect, publishers call voice.

            As for this particular article, I see nothing about it that is hard to read. If you can’t take the time to read a simple paragraph long article, you don’t deserve to try and complain about these so called “grammatical errors”.

          • RyuNoHadouken

            i was just talkin out my ass since you took the time to speak from yours initially…its not that serious bro…go get laid or something…theres more important things to worry about

      • RyuNoHadouken

        i dont really read too much of them anymore…the grammatical errors usually associated with these articles give me a headache

  • Jacob1

    It makes me so mad that Earthbound was released in Japan and we got Punch Out! Are you freaking serious…

    • Tmaster

      Curse those darn copyright problems. I would love to see Earthbound as a virtual title.

      • Michael Wakeman

        MAybe they’ll release it after the vc lifts off, we can always hope…

    • Squid

      They also get fire emblem.

  • Nintedward

    Oh hell yeah! F-zero was a godsend. I played it for over 7 hours and plan on playing it much more. I’ve been enjoying it more than any modern racing game 😀

    • Michael Wakeman

      Yes now we need a new HD one for wii u!

  • FilipiCn

    I’ll buy it for sure. Only 30 cents.

    • Metal_Man_v2

      Never played the Punch Out games, but for 30 cents, GET IT WHILE YOU CAN! It seems like a good investment, and it’s cheaper than a rental.

  • Scott Duperree

    One of my favorite games ever

  • how many time can you release the same game and get excited for it? smh RIP wii u

    • kikkelipissi

      You seem to like your CoDs so don’t complain about releasing same games.

      • Metal_Man_v2

        I’m ok with the fact that you don’t like CoD, but let’s be real, how many have you actually played? They are no more the same game than pokemon. New stories, new maps, new ways to play, new metagames, new stats and customization tools with each and every game.

    • Zuxs13

      What’s wrong with getting excited for a classic great game being re-released? especially since its for $.30

    • audi lover

      How old are you? You must be to young to even know what punch out is otherwise you give it the respect it deserves

  • Paul Wright

    Woo punchout!

  • Fred

    I hope everyone buys it. If nintendo makes money on these at 30 cents (which will only happen if everyone buys them) maybe they’ll do something like this more often.

  • Mr. Nidoking

    Never played Punch Out before but am considering getting it. Would you guys recommend it?

    • Zuxs13

      Yes its a great classic. It far beyond worth the $.30 its selling for.

    • Justin Gray

      You will get hours of enjoyment out of it. It is a fun game and was very innovative at the time of its release. The challenge is intense and the controls are tight. I played when I was ten and I bought it on Wii when I was 30 and played it a bunch both times. 30 cents is a steal.

    • Michael Scofield

      Yea, its such a BIG decision. Should I pay 30 cents or not? Don’t want to break your bank.

  • ejownz6

    This is a great game. I didn’t really like Fzero or the bubble game. Wish they’d have had better games for this .30 promo, but for 30 cents I won’t complain too much.

  • Sure I’ll buy it, just 30 cents for a great oldschool NES game.

  • Hell yeah, I’m going buy it. I can’t wait to get home.

  • Eric J. Cottle

    Nope, got it for the Wii, so its already transferred over.

    • mikeybruises

      Me too.

  • Link Slayer

    i love this game. my regular has been lost with all my games. if i wanted to buy a regular and this game I may be looking at 30 bucks. at least a buck for the game. plus u get gamepad play 30 cents is a steal for one of my favorite games!

  • Michael Scofield

    How can you consider yourself a gamer and never have played Punch Out? I must be old.

  • Noel Canales


  • If you dont buy the 30 cent games, your an idiot.

  • mikeybruises

    That great. I must say, and its been said by other gaming sites as well, this game to this day is ranked up at least top three toughest final boss battle of all games ever created. It was even more imposing when it was Mike Tyson instead of Mr. Dream. I recommend using the D-pad, the analog stick will be a little slow. Believe me, your going need every fraction of second. Good Luck.


    A bona fide 80’s classic. Best 30p i’ve spent in ages!
